Daschna I used to play budget Kess (except actually budget) and won some matches with it!

The one suggestion I say you need in your deck is Jace, Wielder of Mysteries. Brain Freeze, Lotus Petal and Underworld Breach is an alternate combo you should add to your deck, and you could do with a copy of Dockside Extortionist.

+1 from me!

jackiscool231 the 0-mana artifacts Mishra's Bauble and Mox Opal reduces Emrys manacost to just one blue mana. Thats why! :)

phastings1982 We can target ourselves with Brain Freeze to dig deeper into our deck which is valueable. Also, it has storm which makes it counterable by only Flusterstorm. So in both these regards, Brain Freeze seems to be the better pick!

jaymc1130 Hehe sorry for not responding! Fierce Guardianship is an obvious powerhouse in this deck! It's simply amazing. I've also included Lithoform Engine along with many other new additions to my personal list. Will update soon :)

I really like Teferi's Ageless Insight and Whirlwind of Thought here -- they'll draw you an absolute boatload of cards.

It also looks like you're sort of trying to storm off maybe? Or are you aiming for a token horde?

I'd recommend a primary Storm plan with a secondary token flood with cards like Young Pyromancer. Empty the Warrens is great regardless of if you want to take the storm path, but Grapeshot and Brain Freeze, as well as Haze of Rage, are pretty solid win conditions.

Use to look for 1-mana red spells that draw a card. With those and Kykar, you can chain together a crapton of spells in a single turn.

Also, Battlefield Forge, Shivan Reef, Cascade Bluffs, Mystic Gate, Rugged Prairie, Skycloud Expanse, Sulfur Falls, Glacial Fortress, Clifftop Retreat should fix those 9 taplands you've got. They are all about $3 or less on TCGPlayer last I checked, so they shouldn't be too expensive.

I guess it would help if I better explained the play pattern. In my testing, I can usually get the Citadel in hand before I have the mana to cast it. As soon as I have the ability to play it, I do and use it that turn. Because of the lifegain cards and the lack of lands am capable of casting the whole library. While it works best if I already have Aetherflux Reservoir, it isn't necessary. Chances are that the storm count is so high by the time I cast it that even if it were the second to last card, it would still get the job done, and if not Sphinx-Bone Wand, Brain Freeze, and Tendrils of Agony should finish it. In short, once I have the Citadel out, I usually don't have any mana to activate the Top, and if I did, it wouldn't matter horribly much because I will probably cast it all anyway.

Nice deck (+1), kinda reminds me of a storm deck my friend played with Brain Freeze as the win condition. Do you think some bounce cards such as Retract and Hurkyl's Recall would work well here with Altar of the Brood/Grinding Station?

I took out Mox Diamond because I have too few lands, it's worse than Chrome Mox. If you run 30 lands+ you may include it. LED has no use unless you want to have backup plans to combo with it (Underworld Breach + Brain Freeze) otherwise it doesn't fit well in this deck.

Gaea's Cradle isn't that good in this deck, this is not a creature heavy deck.

Got a good laugh with this one. Was playing the same PO Oracle deck as another post. He had Time Spirals and the like and was doing his thing. Then when I conveniently found myself with a Black Lotus sitting on the field, I picked up a Brain Freeze and flipped his combo on himself. I was worried he’d have an Oracle in hand to counter for the win but alas, with just a Force of Negation it was not enough to save him from himself. One of the funniest finishes to a game so far.

Try adding Brain Freeze, it combos with LED and Breach. Nice list anyway! Up for me
